a gift for now and then


I received a gift. Something I desperately wanted for a long time, and prayed for. God knows the depths of my heart.

Two things happened:
Upon receiving the gift, I realized what I had missed. Bitter!
Upon receiving the gift, healing began. Healing to cover the loss. Sweet.

Oh, there is a balm in Gilead. There is a balm, indeed.

Congratulations on your gift! And also for not focusing on what you had missed but focusing on the healing and forward movement. HUGS!
